hot water timer
 
My hot water timer is making a noise continously (at least every time I check it). Almost every second. Is this something to be woried about, or does it need replaced?
Thanks

Most all water heater timers have a very small motor turning continously, as inside a watch. If it is a continous hum, it is just the motor running. As you are aware the dial turns. This is accomplished by the small motor turning inside.
